LOS ANGELES, Oct. 15 (UPI) -- U.S. actor Steve Martin reportedly has signed on for a role in Nancy Meyers' as-yet-untitled big-screen comic love triangle.

Martin and Meyers previously worked together on the "Father of the Bride" movies, which Meyers co-wrote and produced and in which Martin starred.

Variety.com said Martin's character in the new movie will compete with one played by Alec Baldwin for the affections of a character filled by Meryl Streep.

The movie, which Meyers wrote and is to direct, is to start shooting in February, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.

Meyers' films include "What Women Want," "Something's Gotta Give" and "The Holiday."

Martin, a former "Saturday Night Live" player, was recently seen in "Baby Mama" and will next star in "Pink Panther 2."
